plastic flaps can cause problems in kirtas
kirtas machine leaves artifacts of its plastic flap on the scanned pages, which cannot be cured completely on color pages. The end results do not look encouraging.
Is it worth $190,000?

FYI: we don't scan with this system anymore
(just in case folks wanted to know)
